My wife and I recently stayed at the Arc La Rambla Hotel in Barcelona for one night, pre-cruise. Upon arrival we were given an upgrade to a Superior room with a balcony facing the Rambla, this was a pleasant surprise and unexpected. The rooms was not large by American standards, but was very clean and functional. The only minor issue I had was when we went into the room there was no electricity, I went down to the main desk and told them, but was informed that you have to put your room card into a slot just inside your room door in order to turn on the electricity, they should tell their guest at check in about the slot in their room. This is the first time I have seen this and the electric came on once the room key was inserted into the slot. The next day we had breakfast at the hotel, which was a European style continental breakfast. It was ok, not outstanding but served us well. When we checked out we didn’t have to go to a cab stand, they were sitting right outside of the hotel, and it was approximately 14 Euros from the hotel to the Ship Terminal. One note, after reading several negative reviews about the hotel security and location prior to arriving in Barcelona I was concerned, but let me say that we had no issues with the location or hotel security. The rooms have electronic safes and there were no problems walking the streets, you just have to be aware of your surroundings and pay attention and you will not have any problems. I would definitely stay at this hotel again in the future.
